Putin Praises Israeli President's Sexual Prowess

Maybe America doesn’t have the most ignorant leader in the world today.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has his own way of seeing the Moshe Katzav rape allegations.
From the Guardian:

Vladimir Putin’s international image was tainted today after it emerged he had let slip another of his infamous remarks – this time praising the president of Israel for alleged sex offences.
“He turned out to be a strong man, raped 10 women,” the Russian president was quoted by Russian media as saying at a meeting in Moscow with Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert. “I never would have expected it of him. He has surprised us all, we all envy him!”

Granted, spokespeople were quick to clarify:

A spokesman told the BBC the comments were meant as a joke and in “in no way meant that President Putin welcomes rape”.
“Russian is a very complicated language, sometimes it is very sensitive from the point of view of phrasing,” he said.

“We envy him” must lose something in the translation, then. Perhaps a little discretion when speaking in front a majority non-Russian speaking planet?

  1. Almost like it was scripted out of Mel Brooks “Blazing Saddles”…
    Putting together a railroad crew, open interviews are being held at a table by the tracks, rap shets are being reviewed, one burly knucklehead steps forward for the inquiry:
    Interviewer: “Your Rap sheet…let’s see here, Rape, Rape, Armed Robbery, Rape, Rape,,,
    Why so much rape?
    Pre-Putin Wannabee: “I like rape”
    Nuff Said.
